Charles Dicken's classic "A Christmas Carol," canceled at high school

"...A high school principal canceled a dramatic performance of Charles Dicken's classic "A Christmas Carol," partly because he feared it would raise questions about the place of religion in public schools.
When schools in the Lake Washington School District include religion in their curriculum, they must present a balance of many religions, Assistant Superintendent Cindy Meilleur explained to the paper.
"Teaching about religious holidays is permissible, but celebrating them is not,'' Meilleur said. "You can teach about a variety of religions, but should not emphasize a particular one."

PADRE POINT: So I would presume that same high school will also not have a Christmas vacation...after all, isn't that emphasizing one religion...SECULARISTS are totally clueless about the first 6 letters of CHRIST-MAS!!! Jesus is the reason for the season.
